Experience Macao Your Own Style

Macao - located on the western bank of the Pearl River Delta in southern Guangdong Province, People's Republic of China - adjoins the Mainland city of Zhuhai and lies some 60 kilometers to the west of Hong Kong. Macao comprises Macao Peninsula, Taipa and Coloane. Macao Peninsula is the hub of the territory and is connected to Taipa by three bridges. Several large international hotel resorts - with new supporting infrastructure - are located on the reclaimed land between Taipa and Coloane in the newly developed district known as Cotai.

The Portuguese arrived and settled in Macao in the mid 16th Century. Thus, the city’s architecture, art, religion, traditions, food and community reflect the integration of Chinese, Western and Portuguese cultures. Macao became a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China on 20th December 1999 and exercises a high degree of autonomy under the principle of "One country, two systems". The SAR is growing in size with more buildings on reclaimed land, and in the number and diversity of its attractions. In 2005, The Historic Centre of Macao was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a result of its unique historical and cultural landscape. Macao is currently positioning itself as the World Centre of Tourism and Leisure as it develops into a quality international tourist destination.

Macao Gastronomy

A special combination of Portuguese and Chinese cuisine, with ingredients and seasonings assembled from Europe, Africa and South East Asia, Macanese cuisine is uniquely irresistible. Renowned for its flavour-blending culture, and common cooking techniques such as baking, grilling and roasting, Macanese food - with over 450 years of history - is typically seasoned with spices such as turmeric and cinnamon, while a dash of coconut milk tops off the unforgettable aroma and taste. Signature dishes most famously include 'Galinha à Africana' (African chicken) and Macanese Chilli Shrimps.
